Lee Beck met some friends and they had a fly fishing weekend on the White River in Arkansas. Kim reports, “Catch & Release trout fishing is fun, but there is no fish dinner at the end. Boo!”
Kim Beck met some old high school friends for a long beach weekend in Galveston. She comments, “The weather was great and lots of fun was had by all until the flat tire on the way home near Fairfield. A very nice gentleman stopped to change our tire and we were back underway in 20 minutes flat. That included our unloading & reloading all of our luggage, junk and coolers to get to the spare.”
Yvonne Weir reports, “The Weir, Campbell and Esterhuyse families spent Friday and Saturday and part of Sunday at Cooper Lake tent camping. Malorie Padrone and Daniel, Desirea and Denise came, also. The kids ran and played and kayaked and swam and everyone had a great time. The party was to honor Nicolaas Robert Esterhuyse, as he turned 2 years old. Camp Nicolaas was a great success.” Nicolaas is the son of Destri and Eben Esterhuyse and grandson of Robert and Yvonne Weir.
Brenda Allen, of Yantis, Regina Taylor, of Sulphur Springs, and Yvonne Weir and I went to Fairview for lunch on Friday, April 27th, in honor of Yvonne’s upcoming birthday. We enjoyed a delicious meal at Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, and then we looked around in the kitchen shop. Yvonne says, of her birthday meal, “The food was good, y’all.”
Hopkins House treated Brightstar Baseball to hot dogs and Tropical Sno served snow cones to the team on Monday night. Yvonne reports, “It was lots of fun”
We had hamburgers and homemade ice cream on Saturday evening for our grandson Landon’s birthday. Those attending included Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin, Tiffany Vaughn, Kenden, Jaidyn, Morgan, and Malcolm Joslin, and Chip and myself. We started the celebration without him, because he had a last minute run for work. Laiken prepared him a special meal on his actual birthday, Monday, April 30th.
I visited with Mary Rawson for a little while on Sunday afternoon, and then Chip and I visited Rosemary Horn, after church that evening.
